My name is Richard Jones. I have been a goldsmith and bench jeweler for over thirty years. I have lived in California all my life, and now live in Northern California where I enjoy time with my family. I recently manufactured a piece that was designed by a retail store that I do repairs for. The piece was then entered into the AGTA Spectrum awards, and won first place in the casual division of the awards. My family and I have considered this quite a blessing since we just recently opened our own retail business.
